We have exciting news to share with our blog readers! As this post’s headline suggests, the attorneys at Sanchez & Polovetsky have been named to the 2018 Super Lawyers list for the New York Metro Area. You can read all about it here.
What is even more exciting is that it’s the fourth year in a row that our attorneys have received this honor. Attorneys Philip A. Sanchez and Jennifer Polovetsky have been included in the Super Lawyers List for the NY Metro area every year since 2015.
Each year, no more than five percent of the lawyers in the State are selected to receive this honor by the research team at Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business.
When asked what this honor means professionally and personally, Philip Sanchez, a partner at the firm, reflected for a moment and then said, “You can’t imagine the tremendous amount of stress a business owner, who has put their entire life’s work and effort into their business, undergoes when faced with eminent domain and the possibility of losing it all. We take great pride in helping these enterprises, which are often family owned and multi-generational. They often have the opportunity to improve with a fresh start at a new location. To be recognized for these efforts is deeply satisfying on both a professional and personal level.”
Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made using a patented multiphase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area. The result is a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys.
Jennifer Polovetsky, the founding partner of the firm and a New York resident, said that “this honor is especially meaningful because the New York Metro Area is where we work and live. When we help local New York property owners and businesses, we are also seeking to improve the overall community serving our friends, neighbors, and businesses that we frequent. It’s a great feeling to be recognized for our efforts by our peers.”
The Super Lawyers lists are published nationwide in Super Lawyers Magazines and in leading city and regional magazines and newspapers across the country. Super Lawyers Magazines also feature editorial profiles of attorneys who embody excellence in the practice of law.
